Israel Keyes faced a possible death sentence if convicted of kidnapping and murdering 18-year-old Samantha Koenig, but didn’t wait to learn his fate. The 34-year-old found dead in his Anchorage jail cell in an apparent suicide. And in a new twist:

(Rook) “We’ve developed information that he was responsible for multiple additional victims.”

FBI Special Agent Mary Rook.

(Rook) “To our knowledge there are no other victims here in Alaska,  they’re all in the lower 48.”

Keyes reportedly confessed to killing three people, including Koenig, but claimed to murder eight in all.
